Marble – Natural Stone

Paver Materials
natural dark marble



Marble pavers are used for some of the most elite residences in Naples. The ability to cut, shape, and create detailed mosaics makes marble one of the most practical materials. Marble occurs in large deposits all over the world, but there is a large deposit right here in the united states. Marble deposits can be hundreds of feet thick and geographically extensive. This allows it to be economically mined on a large scale, with some mines and quarries producing millions of tons per year.

Marble is usually a light-colored rock. It will be white when formed from limestone with very few impurities. Marble that contains impurities such as clay minerals, iron oxides, or bituminous material can be bluish, gray, pink, yellow, or black in color.

Marble is a metamorphic rock composed of recrystallized carbonate minerals, most commonly calcite or dolomite. Marble may be foliated. Geologists use the term “marble” to refer to metamorphosed limestone; however, stonemasons use the term more broadly to encompass unmetamorphosed limestone. Marble is commonly used for sculpture and makes a outdoor flooring material that will last generations. Our marble paver installers at Accurate Pavers can give you the home of your dreams.
